Cycle lane is behind Brighton and Hove bus delays
1:50pm Friday 8th February 2013 in News
Busesare being delayed because of a £700,000 cycle lane.
The 1.5km stretch in Old Shoreham Road, Hove, was officially opened in July.
Bosses at Brighton and Hove City Council hoped it would lead to a rise in people travelling by public transport.
He added this was a result of the upgraded pedestrian crossing at The Upper Drive junction.
Coun Davey said Brighton and Hove Bus Company has now adjusted timing and routing of services to combat the extended crossing time.
Coun Davey said: “It is always difficult to balance the needs of all modes of transport at junctions, but the safety of children is paramount if they are to be encouraged to walk.
“Officers are looking at the phasing of the signals to ensure they are providing a benefit to all pedestrians while ensuring that buses and traffic are not unnecessarily delayed.”
